      It might not be a scam. I just checked the website and it seems alright. The email address they provided for you to get back was an official one? Was it something like or a hotmail ID?

      Wow, I actually don't know what to say to that. Is there anyone who can be more helpful? Am I missing something?

    Are they asking for money? If not, what have you got to lose?

    You really have not left enough details where I could begin to get a feeling if it's for real or a possible scam.

    I know there are plenty of web sites who pay others to do promotions on their behalf. Often this work is SEO related or for PPC ad management.

    I would contact them and feel them out for more details before deciding something is a scam when it very well could be legitimate.

    Just be very cautious! If they ask for money or any personal details like your bank account number then you have a good reason to run away. If they are offering YOU work there is no good reason they should be asking you for money. If they do it's probably a scam most likely.

    Give it a fair chance and see where it leads. Good luck, I do hope it is a legitimate offer. smile
